4OS2, 4DOS, and everything else

4DOS I still fondly remember as quite possibly the best shell ever. Combine that with any other shell's scripting engine (bash, OS/2's cmd.exe's REXX, amiga's aRexx, csh, tcsh, anything else), and you'd have the most awesome thing ever. (4DOS/4OS2's batch language was an extended DOS batch, which was in turn a greatly stripped down /bin/sh script.. so.. i didn't like it one bit)

Before I switched to OS/2 in 1994, all I ever used were : 4DOS, Q-Edit, games.
